Polite? What's polite got to do with it, when Jonesy is asking where on 
this planet was the OP located, which might narrow down where the OP 
could get a reasonable deal. If he's from India, with all of their 
import tariffs, he might be better served by a location already within 
India. Like that. Just because something is on the net doesn't mean 
it'll appear at your doorstep free of shipping, handling and tariff. So 
it is reasonable to ask location, and even more reasonable to give it up 

I highly doubt Jonsey felt "mocked". He's got a tough skin and I suspect 
that he's all grown up. Ric
